Love Sterling Shores/not this Condo.
We have been coming to Sterling Shores for many years. We appreciate the close location to the beach, enjoy the lovely pool area and the added sense of security in the gated grounds. This year those staying in the facility were required to wear wrist bands, which was another layer of safety that my family liked. We were a bit disappointed in our Condo 818 where we found a live insect in a kitchen drawer, carpets that were not clean and the clothes dryer took 2-3 times of full cycles to dry our clothing. We will be back to Sterling Shores but will likely not book in Condo 818 again.
Very nice, clean and quiet
The condo was exactly like the pictures. Fit all 8 of us perfectly. The complex was very nice and suprisingly quiet for spring break, great for a family. There wasn’t a hot tub which was disappointing. Our only complaint about the condo was that we wished they would’ve provided simple things such as toilet paper, salt and pepper and maybe baggies for left over storage. But overall we were pleased with our stay!
Hi Deidra. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this fabulous condo. We’re happy to hear you had enough room for your party of 8 and that you found it clean and quiet. We hope you enjoyed the fabulous views from the balcony. We wish you would have contacted us regarding the items such as toilet paper and salt & pepper, we could have sent you some if requested. Thanks again for your feedback and thank you for choosing Real Joy!
Sterling Shores Amazing!!
Great weekend at the beach, Destin always a favorite for the kids. The pool still too cold this time of year, but everyone enjoyed being on the beach since the weather was so nice.
Our condo was good size, perfect location right by the elevator for the kids and great view overlooking the pool. The furnishings were a little worn and the carpet in bad shape. Seems like tile throughout would be better choice for beach condo.
Overall a great time and we'll definitely be back to Sterling Shores.
Hi Brad, we are glad you had a great time at this condo conveniently located next to the elevators with a great view of the pool. We are happy everyone enjoyed the beach and the nice weather. Your recommendations will be referred to our Property Management Team and the owner. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with Real Joy.
Great condo and location!
Condo is very nice and clean! The outdoor furniture was put to use while enjoying the awesome view. Our only complaint, the master bedroom mattress is not the most comfortable . Over all we had a great stay, and we would definitely stay here again! Also would recommend to others!
Hi Olivia. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this lovely condo. We’re happy to hear you found the unit clean and enjoyed the awesome view. Our teams work hard to keep the units clean and comfortable for our guests. We will pass along your complaint to property management regarding the mattress. We hope you will come back to see us! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
Beautiful! Very well-kept and super clean. Perfect view and location of the Beach and nice pool.
Loved this place! We will definitely return. I spent a lot of time on the oversized balcony with perfect view of the pool and Beach. Super clean inside and out. Nice covered parking. Perfect location, close to everything. Plenty of room in the condo and cleanliness was outstanding. Not one complaint!
Hi Wynona. Thank you for your feedback on your stay at this fabulous condo. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the balcony with the awesome views and the cleanliness of this unit. Our teams work hard to keep the units clean and comfortable for our guests. We hope you will come back to visit! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
Very Nice. Has all the amenities!
We enjoyed this condo very much! Has all the ameninities that are needed and was very clean. It even had beach chairs that could have been used.
I do recommend replacing the skillet as it is very used and it's starting to flake when cooked in. That did not affect our stay though and just something that I saw because I used it. We will stay here again! Great place for a family vacation!
Thank you for your feedback on this lovely condo. We’re so glad you enjoyed the amenities and beach chairs. We look forward to your return visit! Thank you for staying with Real Joy!
